1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Bat Off Shoulder PSA VG-EX 4 - Polar Bear Back

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,422

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Attractive example of one of Ty Cobb's most classic cards with the unusual Polar Bear advertising back. The T206 Ty Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose is one of the key cards in the set. This card displays a crisp, flawless image, excellent centering, no creases or wrinkles, and even wear on the corners. Light staining is visible on front and back, common to the Polar Bear brand cards. Otherwise clean and with a boldly printed advertisement on reverse. We grade this card slightly more conservatively than PSA (but with a Polar Bear back, we recognize that this is a very nice example, as T206 Polar Bear cards naturally have more condition issues, including tobacco staining, than any other T206 brand cards, due to their method of issue without protection from the tobacco). Extremely desirable example of this classic card featuring the unusual and highly collectible Polar Bear brand reverse. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $1,325. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,422
